Maybach Music For The Win…

maybach music

Do you remember when it cost real cake to own a Maybach? That was on some private jet ownership level type shit. You had to have a driver at all times too. No real Maybach owner drives the car themself. That would be uncivilized. No that the good name of Maybach Motors has been sullied by all the rappers I wonder what car the for real rich people own?

Maybach Music is ahead on points while G-Unit is stalling. This won’t last forever but while it is in effect Rick Ro$$ canm gloat all he wants. He took it to one of the real bosses in rap music and he is still standing. This also tarnishes the 50 Cent myth somewhat, but that was happening anyhoo thanks to some tracks that were widely panned (FYI, ‘Get Up’ is a club banger that drives the broads crazy, but you fishsticks wouldn’t care about that).

So just in case you thought you were going to able to escape the future of rap music for one day I am here to tell you that the two-headed rap beast names Asher Ro$$ is coming to computer monitor near you. Ro$$ will actually be bumping from car stereos as well. And not just in southern players cadillacs, but up top and in the midwest too. I don’t think Cali rides too hard for the bootlegg Rick Ro$$ since they already know the real Ricky Ross.

Deeper Than Rap is the album that Def Jam is starting to perfect from their camp. Rappers are becoming R & B singers at a dizzying rate. At least the separation between the two is diminishing. I remember when a rapper would have maybe one track with a falsetto R & B dude just to make their album accessible to the ladies (read: radio). Now I be waiting to hear a rapper spit bars in between singing and crooning.

This is why I fux with SlaughterHouse on the regular. They don’t have any singing in their steez.

What if Maybach Music has ended the career of 50 Cent as we used to know him? What if Pimpin’ Curly is what 50 decides he want to pursue as an entertainer? I’d argue that we would be much poorer for that. 50 Cent makes me laugh as Pimpin’ Curly, but the classic 50 Cent was more vintage Suge Knight than vintage Gladys Knight. The classic 50 Cent didn’t have any friends except for his guns. And Em and Dre.

Sure the classic 50 Cent was a hyper-macho fictional character, but that shit was still entertaining. I don’t find myself entertained by Ro$$ outside of his music. He shouldn’t exist outside of that character he portrays on records. That is when Rick Ro$$ gets his message of opulent wealth all confused up with the shit that middle class people THINK that rich people do.

Ro$$ lives the full-on cinematic gangsta fantasy right now. I don’t want him to wake up from this shit and find himself in hole with Def Jam to the tune of billions. Because you and I can already see how this story is going to end. He still turned in a good album though so give credit to Maybach Music for that much at least. I imagine they are gonna ride this shit until the wheels fall off.

    Yeah DP, classic 50 was a sight to behold. I find myself often going back to the first two albums & the G-unit mixtapes, because them niggas were entertaining when everybody else was rah rah, blah blah, yada yada. Or as you guys say, all “shits & giggles”.

    I can’t say for sure if the whole Ross movement ended 50′s career per se, but it didn’t necessarily help solidfy his spot in the gangsta’s hall of fame. I sort of felt like he was mad @ Ross. Classic Curtis never seemed emotional, just focused on a target. I can’t even say who won; them dudes are fighting different battles. I said it before, Ross has gained from this. It will be obvious. What happens after the release of DTR is anybody’s guess, but “there’s no such as bad publicity”. Even Charles Manson gets fan mail.

      “there’s no such as bad publicity”.
      ^^^^^
      that’s a common misconception, ask Dominos….the wrong publicity can hurt sales and even kill a business…Public Relations teams wouldn’t have to work so hard if that was true

      • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

        I sort of agree Detroit, but that was a blanket statement in reference to the entertainment industry. Whenever an “artist” is embroiled in some type of scandalous activity or horrible accident, their stock goes up. That’s why Robert Downey Jr became the man, again, after all those rehab stunts. What abut the Olsen twins? Hell, even Michael Jackson, & that’s just a small handful of entertainers who should’ve been wiped out by their trails & tribulations.

        As for the Food industry, I totally agree. Fuck that, it’s Pizza Hut from this day onward……..

  • droopey

    Would have to agree Ricky Ross got it right with this one.

    Fif Got scorched.

  • Pierzy

    I think Tony’s right that Ross has gained from this. Also, I listened to “Deeper Than Rap” twice today and while it was pretty good, I wasn’t blown away by it. Again, I’m not what they’re (he’s) reaching for because I can’t get down with all of the R&B tracks (Ne-Yo, T-Pain, The-Dream, John Legend, Robin Thicke), but I didn’t feel like the disc was anything earth shattering…

    “Pretty good” to “Good” is the highest I would go.

    • $ykotic

      “FYI, ‘Get Up’ is a club banger that drives the broads crazy, …”

      So basically the streets are gonna start buying records now? Especially from RR?

      Jeezy had a better album than Ross. I’ll give my assessment on 4/29.

      Penn’s last paragraph states it all.

    What up Tone?

    Although I hate myself for even thinking it, i’m interested to see the the results of the sales battle between these two lackluster rappers. For my own amusement, i’m hoping Rawse outsells 50, just so his little internet STANS will have to live with the fact that their lord and savior was defeated by a fraud. 50 STANS love to quote sound scan results to you like Bible verses (as if that makes up for his shitty music), and it’ll be interesting to see what they say if Rawse outsells 50.

    I’m willing to bet that they’ll use the same excuse they did when Kanye outsold him (i.e. international sales).

    • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

      What up P?! Seal?!

      I don’t even like to comment on those dudes, shit gets out of hand fast, almost as bad as if I mention something about ‘Pac……..

      But, as far as I’m concerned, I don’t even believe shit Antonio Villeragosa says, much less a rapper. I don’t care how many times 50 got shot, don’t care what Ross did before I saw him for the first time. I like them both for the same reason; they rap & I get a kick out of it & I root for the underdog/bad guy. That’s why I became a Curtis fan with “How to Rob…” & that’s why I agree seal, I want to see Rick succeed just because.

      The beef was pretty entertaining, now all the mudslinging is going to be addressed within the next few months. I think Ross may not be “respected” as the winner, but the fact that he’s still saying crazy shit (ie G-unit clothing is the reason for Ecko’s $ problems) on the radio proves that he’s still standing, fighting the idiots fight.

      I wasn’t going to buy it (DTR), but now I feel compelled. Same with BISD.

      • $ykotic

        That “Crack a Bottle” diss Ross just did may have not been a smart move.

      • Pierzy

        Co-Sign – Em will not be amused and it’s just this type of thing to get his anger back…

        • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

          That kind of shit can cause a relapse. Pun intended.

  • General

    You do have to respect the fact that 50 hit Ross with everything including the baby mama’s kitchen sink and Ross didn’t go nowhere. I’ve been sayin for a while that while most people may percieve that 50 was killin him, it seemed like 50 was instead just killin himself.
    I guess we will see what happens with the numbers when Ross’s CD drops (since that is all anyone will really judge him by ultimately), but 50 just can’t seem to figure out how to put him away. Kind of reminds me of Mike Tyson hammerin away at Buster Douglas and then just seemin shell shocked that he wouldn’t go down. And just like Mike, 50 may find his ass on the canvas wonderin what the hell happened?

    • Raul

      General: you are a real thoroughbred with hiphop sense, big up for the vision

  • brand-new

    you can’t count 50 out yet! when it comes to beef 50 plays chess while ross is playin checkers, 50 is just probaly waiting for the right time to go in for the kill, the clock is ticking though! lol

  • K.ola

    how can rawse go some where when his album hasn’t flop… when he does not outsell jadakiss that will be 50′s day… shit even if it’s 150 k…

    and now that ross brought Em in to it dont trip… i laugh myself… he made that man admit he was a c.o…

    the whole shit was about a look he gave him… that’s bitch shit… ross is losing cause in no way in hell can he out sale 50…

    the south is standin for ross that’s it… that shit gets no pass out west…

    in the end this will hurt the south more than it helped…

  • mo

    niggas is mad because ross took 50′s spot in the game. How did ross’s entire life become fake just because he was a c.o. for a year? Niggas love talking out of their asses on the net. Ross’s shit is gonna knock all summer long bitch niggas.

  • sealsaa

    “50 is probably just waiting for the right time to go in for the kill”

    That time has passed. The Smoking Gun pretty much delt Ross the ultimate blow, and Ross has managed to survive it. I’ve said it before, all of this coonery that 50 cent is engaging in is just masking the fact that he can’t rap very well, and that Ross is his equal, if not his superior, on wax.

    When no-so-young Hov dismantled Mobb Deep’s career, it wasn’t JUST because of the infamous Summer Jam pic, it was the verse on TakeOver that did them in. “I don’t care if you Mobb Deep/I hold triggers to crews/you little fuck/I got money stacks bigger than you”. Classic shit. 50′s pimp’n curly, and taking beeyotches shopping? Not so much. His anticts have just given Ross more publicity, and since he’s already hit rock bottom, the only way he can go is up.

    • General

      And what the fuck is the shit with takin his baby moms shoppin for anyways? Its funny, but when you think about it, I would be laughin my ass off at any fool that took my ex-bitch shoppin and wasted his money on her. Hell, I may even thank him so that the bitch leaves me alone and quits beggin for money.

  • Domjel

    Billy, you are riding this until the wheels fall
    off! 50 exposed Boss Hogg Ross’s buffoonery. I mean, from a tactical standpoint 50 open a new style of gorilla warfare that only street cats can relate too. Showing Khaled’s mom and home was a serious warning shot. And fuckin with Hogg’s broads exposed his lack of control and inability to develop loyalty with the women who raise his seeds. And 50 got his hands on the nigga’s tax info. Ya’ll need to understand 50 is fighting like a nigga with money. Am I the only one that can see this?

    • $ykotic

      Naw homie. We just gotta wait for the next move, which is Ross’ sales.

      One man generating attention while another man generating revenue in 2 ways! We will see…

      More Slaughterhouse XXL!

  • ATI

    “FYI, ‘Get Up’ is a club banger that drives the broads crazy”

    that’s what all G-Unit dickriders say when Curtis throws up a brick

    i.e. I Like the Way She Do It

  • zood

    I totally agree about classic 50 Cent.
    When he first came about I thought he personified the type of rapper people wanted to be and glamourised that image.
    Shame his star is fading, not that his millions care too much.

  • ThaFace

    Co-Sign on “Get Up”…still bump that shit when working out and honeys go crazy when the song comes on

  • sealsaa

    @ Domjel

    Its supposed to be a rap battle. Ross dissed him on wax. I’m less interested in bafoonish anticts, and more in a lyrical battle. Again, 50′s anticts are just a smoke screen for the fact that he can’t put together a diss song to save his life. I couldn’t imagine Jay-Z and Nas doing this silly shit. Jay-Z taking Carmen shopping, and Nas thanking him for it. I’d have lost my damn mind.

    • Domjel

      Sealssa,
      Ross brought up 50′s house burning down, which is a legal issue, and too me taking the issue away from lyrics. Nigga’s know the DA uses shit like this to build a case.
      I would appreciate a lyrical battle on wax as well, but sometimes lines get crossed when there aren’t any rules.

  • sealsaa

    Well, neither one of them can really rap worth a shit anyway, and these anticts are just making this the worst beef EVAR. Shit’s corny.

  • http://jasongchu.blogspot.com Grand Master

    hmm… as much as i dont particularly like either artist… Asher Ro$$ is one of the best collabo concepts of the year. I would copp that disc – twice – just to hear Roth & Bawse go line-for-line. dang!

  • Dallas Penn

    Grsnd Master,
    You need to tell them UMG people to get they mind right and big up Asher Ro$$

  • tommy gunz

    so….i just listened to DEEPER THAN FAT…and…no surprise…it sucked balls..im just not a fan of extremely watered down R&B style rap…Rawse can spit-cant deny that..but his albums are all the same..like 2-3 songs i can actually listen to and the rest= watered down bullshit……….

    and u internet fucks kill me–10 days ago “rawse lost its over blahblahblah” and rawse puts outa song with everybody 50′s ethered and all of a sudden fif got scorched? LMAO @ y’all–you’ve mastered the art of being a dickrider
